5 Bedroom cottage Rolleston, Southwell, Nottinghamshire £345,000

Situated at the old water mill in Rolleston is this charming Miller's cottage, currently with five bedrooms and three reception rooms it has views over the golf course and Southwell racecourse. A stunning setting. Price for Cottage only

Waking to birdsong and the sound of the river flowing by the mill, a stay in Old Mill Cottage has delighted many seeking peace and seclusion. The cottage is currently a five bedroom holiday home, and it has many attractions. "It backs on to the golf course, so you can sit on the terrace and enjoy lovely views across to Southwell race course," said the owner. "The nearest neighbours are dow n the lane but out of sight and sound so it's a nice, peaceful place. It's worked well for large parties of people - the cottage has a large dining room where you can easily seat 16."
The cottage is just one small part of the property, which also includes a Grade II Listed watermill, dating from the 1700s, and an adjoining granary are already SSTC. It is believed there has been a mill on this site dating back to the time of the Domesday Book. The planning permission also allows for the conversion of the stable block into a further home and this is also SSTC."The mill and granary will make a very special four bedroom home for the new owners. The views over the golf course from the upper windows of the mill are stunning,"
When the owner and her husband bought the property, they created the seven-bedroom holiday cottage from two smaller cottages, but they have left both staircases intact to allow for easy conversion back into two cottages. The current cottage is decorated in neutral tones that let the original features speak for themselves. "We kept it quite simple. Two of the downstairs rooms have beams in and would have the capacity for an open fire - one looks lovely with candles and the other has an oil-burning stove, which looks old and pretty." "The stairs in the main cottage are very shallow and wide, and it's got a cottagey feel to it. It's great for entertaining, especially because it has such a large kitchen."
There are plenty of amenities within easy reach. "One of the attractions when we bought property was its location and the fact it is walking distance to the village and only about three miles from Southwell, which is a really nice market town.
The area as a whole features an enclosed garden housing the oil tank for the central heating system that services the cottage. In addition to the gardens and grounds of the mill and cottage, which are all laid to lawn with a small patio to the rear, there is an additional 1 acre of land (STMS) directly to the front of the property which could be included in the sale and is home to a derelict garage/coach house. The property also features a two acre (STMS) fenced paddock which forms part of the site as a whole which is available by separate negotiation if required.
The property is situated in the small hamlet of Rolleston, which is positioned between Southwell and Newark. Both offer a number of amenities, in particular the Minster School at Southwell. Newark is an excellent market town where there is a variety of shops including supermarkets within the town. Newark Northgate Station has a fast train service to London Kings Cross taking approx. 1 ¼ hours. Nottingham is 17 miles away and has a wide variety of restaurants, bars and theatres.
Leaving West Bridgford take the A612 towards Burton Joyce and Lowdham. Proceed to the roundabout at Lowdham and take the second exit continuing on the A612 towards Southwell. Follow the A612 through Southwell and before leaving the village turn right signposted Fiskerton. Follow Fiskerton Road out of Southwell and just before the level crossing turn left onto Occupation Lane. Follow the road over the level crossing and just before entering the Village of Rolleston here is a small humped back bridge. Immediately after turn left and follow the driveway track, there is a small lay by on the right hand side and it's recommended that you park your vehicle here and proceed by foot across the level crossing to the Old Mill Cottage.
